IMPACT (International Health Impact Assessment Consortium) aims to improve health and reduce health inequalities locally, nationally and internationally, through Health Impact Assessment (HIA). IIMPACT seeks to promote the integration of HIA into policy planning by doing HIA research, consultancy, and training.

IMPACT is based in the Division of Public Health, a World Health Organisation Collaborating Centre, at the University of Liverpool. The Unit, which is self-financing, was established in 2000. IMPACT works with a range of partners including the World Health Organisation, the European Commission, Health Ministries, Regional Development Agencies, Primary Care Trusts, Local Authorities and private developers.
